    Very good. Great demos. Free to get in. Parking nearby and easy to find. Could be better laid out and more informative. Especially for kids to understand. Stairs don’t go to each floor. Just a strange building layout. Good day out

    Gorgeous park, some lovely play areas and a nice lake to walk around. Lots of open space to have a ball game and the surrounding area is really nice too.

    Very beautiful gardens , the green house is really good to look around and it's surroundings. Plenty of areas to sit and picnic. Good walks around with the dog and kids. Visit frequently in the warmer months . Definitely worth a visit

    A really, really fantastic museum and more to it than what we first thought. We particularly liked choosing our characters and following their stories with the interactive light boxes. Very reasonably priced and the staff were kind enough to let us stay in the car park after we finished our visit so we could walk to get something to eat.

    This theatre is gorgeous, like something out of a Victorian fairytale... if fairytales had comfy seats! We saw a hilarious play, and honestly, the building itself deserves its own standing ovation. The ornate details had us giggling - who knew cherubs could look so dramatic? A perfect date night for couples who appreciate a good laugh (and maybe a cheeky interval ice cream!)....

    What a great walk. You can do a couple of laps if you want to get up to a 5k trip. Not much elevation so easy to walk and easy to find and park

    Visited with our two boys and they loved seeing all the animals. A lot of information about each zone and animal as well. Kids are already wanting to go back

    Not NT or EH but free access with Historic Houses) card. It’s been the home of the Lascelles family since 1771. Henry Lascelles bought the estate in 1738. He was immensely rich, having acquired his wealth through investing in the Caribbean sugar trade, which meant considerable investment in the notorious African/Caribbean slave trade. This uncomfortable fact is confronted in the displays in the house and in the owner’s own guide to the property, the 8th Earl. Explanations are given at various points and the family are making efforts to build diversity into the tour and displays. Henry, however, died without bringing his plans to fruition, and it was left to his son Edwin to spend the wealth on this fabulous creation, built to impress and awe. The finest craftsmen of the age were employed; Carr for the exterior, Adam for the interiors, Chippendale for the furniture and Capability Brown for the landscaping. It’s difficult to decide which of the state rooms is the most impressive. Is it the State Bedroom, for royal use only, and said to have been used only twice ? Is it the Gallery, with its fine collection of Italian Rinascimento art? Or the calm and understated Music Room? In the mid-19th century Charles Barry updated the house but did so without spoiling its charms. Well worth a special outing, let alone a detour!

    Great day. Even though it was raining. That didn't stop us. We had a lovely walk around the house. Then we were able to use the stables to eat lunch. Had a walk round the animals which is looking great and I'm sure will be even better once the renovations are finished. We also adopted a penguin for the year. Finished off with a walk around the 1940's event. Our 7 yrs old enjoyed very much. 😁

    An absolute gem of a museum with so much to see. There was a lot more than I expected and I really enjoyed the Victorian streets, which really bring history to life. It's great for anyone interested in social history.
